The Ducks on Friday signed promising forward Kyle Palmieri to a three-year contract extension valued at 4.4 million, the team announced. Palmieri will earn 1.35 million in the coming season, 1.45 million in 2014-15 and 1.6 million in 2015-16, according to a hockey official familiar with the contract but not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. The 22-year-old opened the season on the Ducks' first line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, but was later slotted with other teammates as Coach Bruce Boudreau worked to maximize Palmieri's speed and shot accuracy. The team's first-round draft pick in 2009 finished with 21 points, including 10 goals, in the regular season and tied for the team lead with three goals in the Ducks' first-round playoff series loss to Detroit. Six of his regular-season goals were game-winners, and he was hot in the late season, with eight points in the final 12 games for the Pacific Division champions. Meanwhile, team legend Teemu Selanne, 43, has yet to announce whether he'll return for the coming season. -- Lance Pugmire
